Studio Update: Virtues Project revisited / May 2022

I have come across a road block with my original concept for the Virtues Project and after many months of attempting to come up with a solution, I have come to the conclusion that as much as I like the idea behind the series… it simply was not working.

I have since revisited the project and have come up with a possible new direction for the Virtues Project:

I may need to re-do Authenticity (below) as I started to fill in the center circle with red lines which, in my head, looked promising, but when I saw the result on paper… well, it was not as exciting and simply is not working with the overall design:

Commitment was originally designed to be a landscape picture, but after I managed to get the image this far, I also saw possibilities in turning it into a portrait design, which opened the door to the next phase of this project:

For the next design, I started thinking about scroll paintings, which led to the idea of adding elements that would suggest a scroll-like look:

For Contentment, I started pushing the scroll idea even further and chose to only show portions of the design where the “panels” would be:

There will still be ink layers added later to the pictures, however, I am still deciding on whether or not I should continue in the style used for Commitment or if I should incorporate some of the ideas explored in the original Virtues series.
